Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’ s team said: “Armored fifth-wheel designs for
yard tractors will be a key trend for market growth. In the era of technological advances in fifth-wheel
designs and configurations, Fontaine Fifth Wheel has introduced the Armor fifth-wheel for yard tractors.
It is designed in a way that makes it stronger and simpler, and is protected from kingpin impairment. It
can be ordered on new tractors or can be fitted to existing competitor brackets in the aftermarket. It is
designed from the ground up to meet the unique demands of the market after a thorough life cycle
testing at the company's R&D center in the US.”
According to the report, one of the key drivers for market growth will be increased agricultural practices
leading to automation in farming. The demand for global agricultural equipment has fluctuated since the
2008 recession, but the market was flat in terms of production as well as revenues —especially in
developed regions —but, demand remained positive in emerging nations. While the market felt the
effects of the recession till late 2011, it witnessed significant growth in 2013 and 2014; however, the
demand for agriculture equipment declined in 2015.
Further, the report states that given that fifth-wheel couplings are safety critical items, they should be
visually inspected regularly as part of driver's daily walk-around check. Checking lubrication and visual
inspection is the minimum requirement that can ensure that there are no evident bends and cracks and
all the bolts holding the coupling onto the tractor unit are present. They should be treated in the same
way as the vehicle's braking, suspension, and steering systems. Hence, we believe that such lack of
proper inspection and service procedure questions the safety of the vehicle and challenges the growth
couplings in the global market.
The study was conducted using an objective combination of primary and secondary information
including inputs from key participants in the industry. The report contains a comprehensive market and
vendor landscape in addition to a SWOT analysis of the key vendors.

About Fifth-Wheel Coupling
The fifth-wheel coupling of the fifth wheel is a mechanical arrangement that provides the link between
an articulated semi-trailer and the towing unit, tractor unit, leading trailer, or dolly. The coupling
consists of a kingpin of 50.8-88.9 mm in diameter with a steel pin on the front of the semi-trailer and a
horseshoe-shaped coupling equipment called a fifth wheel on the rear end of the towing unit. The
surface of the semi-trailer (with the kingpin at the center) turns against the surface of the altered fifth
wheel, which does not pivot. To lessen rubbing, oil is added to the surface of the fifth wheel.
Technavio’ s analysts forecast the global automotive fifth-wheel coupler market to grow at a CAGR of
7.3% during the period 2016-2020.
